Please read - possibly wonkyness alert.
« on: December 06, 2011, 11:01:13 AM »
We\'ve had sustained multiple attempts to hack us the last few days:



This is a copy of one of the graphs the monitoring software produces. Fail2ban monitors the logs, notices hacks/general naughtyness and bans the place it came from. As you can see it\'s been a bit busy since sunday...

For now the fort seems to be holding, I don\'t see any evidence of a successful hack. I\'m keeping an eye on things though. If anyone notices anything wonky, let me know :)

This is now resolved.

Turned out it was my fault, an update had caused fail2ban to start banning real people....oops...

What a mistaka-ta-maka...
